Composition of the essential oils from Portuguese Thymus albicans collected at different regions of Ria Formosa (Algarve)



Composition of the essential oils from Portuguese Thymus albicans collected at different regions of Ria Formosa (Algarve)



Journal of Essential Oil Research 16(4): 308-311



The chemical composition of the essential oils from the leaves and the flowers of T. albicans collected at three regions of Algarve, south of Portugal, was analysed by GC and GC-MS. The oils isolated from the flowers and the leaves were obtained in similar yields, 4.3% (v/w) and 4.2% (v/w), in the samples from Quinta do Lago, and 3.5 and 3.6%, in the samples from Ancao, respectively. In contrast, the oil yields from Gambelas ranged from 5.7%, in the leaf oils, to 9.2%, in the flower oils.
